There is no problem with a progressive tax system but the rich don't pay their fair share because of the tax code loopholes and the fact they can afford the best tax attornies. Switzerland, bahamas, lichenstein, luxembourge, monte carlo, etc.
I also propose to punish those with multiple dependants so only the rich can have multiple kids and pay more taxes. The way it is now most people
cannot afford to even support THEMSELVES with minimum wage jobs, let alone start a family and have kids.
And yes illegal immigration is certainly a problem because business does not report those wages to the government, therefore business can pay those
illegals less than than minimum wage requirements, thus the locals cannot compete at all with the illegals.
Jobs get shipped overseas all the time so that companies can save money, unions are demonised and weakened, welfare spending may go down do to
austerity, government is forced to pay more than what it collects from taxes.
Why does the government have to borrow in the first place? That is what government bonds are all about and only the wealthy can afford to buy them in
the first place as well as investment firms. The rich earn interest and run the government.
Welcome to corporate slavery since the industrial revolution. Not really free at all and even communism seems a better alternative given that a job
is guaranteed, a house is guaranteed, probably some form of transporation, a vacation and other basic needs.
I am not for communism though. I am for social democracy and perhaps even national socialism!
